MPS 2018.1 Help

File Status Highlights

In MPS, each file has its own status marked with a specific color. A file status shows how the actual file's content corresponds to the one marked as 'current'.

In the editor, each line in a file is checked for its correspondence with the 'current' state and is marked with a specific color in the left gutter area.

You can customize the default colors:

  • For files: In the Settings/Preferences dialog (N/A), under Version Control | File Status Colors
  • For lines in the editor: In the Settings/Preferences dialog (N/A), under Editor | Color Scheme | VCS.
